Visit Frisco Colorado

Visit Breckenridge Colorado Frisco is what we like to call the doorstep to the Rockies. The quaint town sits 71 miles west of Denver and is the center of Summit County, Colorado. Prepare to be taken back by the beauty that surrounds you as you near the town of Frisco and witness stunning views of Buffalo Mountain, Mount Royal, and Peak 1 of the Tenmile Range overlooking the large Dillon Reservoir. Frisco attractions include access to the Dillon Reservoir via the Frisco Bay Marina where during the summers visitors can rent paddle boards, canoes, kayaks, fishing boats, pontoon boats, or take a tour on a sailboat!

Frisco, Colorado just made the Wall Street Journal’s list of the “Coolest, Under-the-Radar Ski Towns of the American West” due to its close proximity to Breckenridge, Copper Mountain, Arapahoe Basin, and Keystone. Not only is it near 6 world-class ski resorts, but it is also the access point to tons of hiking and biking trails including Summit County Recpath. The Frisco Adventure Park is a hit with guests and the local community alike as it sits on the Dillon Reservoir and is home to a bike park and trails, disc golf course, a skatepark in the summer and tubing, Nordic skiing and sleigh rides in the winter.

Transportation to Frisco

There are many options to get to Frisco. Airlines fly into Denver International Airport, and ground transportation options range from ride shares, shuttles, rental cars and buses to take you up the I-70 corridor to the mountains of Summit County, Colorado.

Denver International Airport is the largest airport which is 90 miles east of Summit County. Eagle County Regional Airport is another option which is 65 miles west of Summit County near Vail, Colorado. If you are planning to drive a rental car, we highly recommend that as you book your flights to Colorado you also reserve your vehicle ahead of time as it is often difficult to find a rental car on arrival.
If you are considering driving be sure you are prepared for winter conditions in the mountains. During the winter, CDOT issues chain laws which require all vehicles to have 4WD, AWD and/or snow tires or chains when the chain law is in effect. Plan to leave early when going to or from the airport as driving conditions in the area can change at any time and traffic is common.
Rental car services and shuttles are recommended for travel to this location.
